Perfect for those winter days – a classic farce, with a dash of heart.

Love is a thing of joy – it makes these lads write poems (don’t worry – no-one reads them -including us!) But they can’t string a sentence together when it comes to letters … to their beloveds … who they met at the ball the other night … (sound familiar?)

They ask them to lunch and that’s when the chaos begins – all deftly managed by an unflappable College Scout (think Jeeves – managing a bun fight … after buying the buns!)

First performed in 1892, on February 29th, Charley’s Aunt became the longest-running play worldwide, a Christmas favourite, also adapted for films and musicals.

Mistaken identity, crossed wires, misunderstanding and fast paced action – not forgetting the cross-dressing (well someone must pretend to be Charley’s Aunt – she’s not arrived, and the beloveds must have a chaperone … it’s 1892 remember!)

You’ll love it! This play will make you laugh.

“All you’ve got to do is remember you’re a real old lady.”

“How can I remember I’m a real old lady (lifts skirt and petticoat together, showing trousers to knees) – with my trouser on?”
